I did not suggest something else. The only problem is that physical evidence is not equal somebody making a statement about physical evidence. For instance, if a Revisionists writes that the homicidal gas-chambers are refuted by physical evidence, because of x (whereas x is a line of argument), it doesn't mean that the homicidal gas-chambers are really refuted by physical evidence unless x can be confirmed to be true. Which is usually not the case with Revisionist arguments by the way.

The only problem is that physical evidence is not equal to somebody making a statement about physical evidence. For instance, if a "survivor" writes that the homicidal gas-chambers are proved by physical evidence, because of x (whereas x is a line of argument usually called poetic license), it doesn't mean that the homicidal gas-chambers existed by physical evidence unless x can be confirmed to be true. Which is usually not the case with survivor arguments by the way.

fixed it for you.

Your fixing makes no sense. A survivor's account is not considered as physical evidence, but as testimonial evidence.

That's the problem Hans, there is no physical evidence.
